Shakira has clearly found a close friend in Rihanna.

In the music video for their new duet, "Can't Remember to Forget You," the two are shown in bodysuits and atop bed sheets, cuddling and smoking cigars as they sing of a post-breakup longing.

The video, which also shows Shakira playing an electric guitar and drums, was directed by Joseph Kahn, who also helmed Mariah Carey and Miguel's "#Beautiful," as well as "Love the Way You Lie" by Eminem and Rihanna.

"Can't Remember to Forget You" was released on Jan. 13 as the first single off of Shakira's self-titled inaugural album with Sony label RCA, her first since 2010’s Sale el Sol. She has said in an interview that Shakira is dedicated to Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué, her partner and the father of her son, Milan, reports Billboard.

The singer's video release comes just weeks before she returns to The Voice, which is back for a sixth season on Feb. 24.

Shakira hits shelves March 25.
